Where were you when you heard the news of the 9/11 attacks? Where you in school, at work, driving in your car? I was walking to the cafeteria at lunch when I found out. I stopped right in the middle of the road- shocked and devastated. I will never forget. Please post what you were doing or felt on 9/11. Or even just write the name and great memory of someone you know who lost their life…Let’s Remember.

CHICAGO — It was a celebration of Palestinian culture — a night of music, dancing and a dash of politics. Local Arab Americans were bidding farewell to Rashid Khalidi, an internationally known scholar, critic of Israel and advocate for Palestinian rights, who was leaving town for a job in New York.

Republicans have been critisized for using the word socialism and Marxist, but Obama uses it himself in his OWN BOOK!

“To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully,” the Democratic presidential candidate wrote in his memoir, “Dreams From My Father.” “The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist professors and structural feminists.”

The Barack Obama We Hardly Know

McCain is the best choice for president. I have been reading a ton (I have become way too obsessed) on both Obama’s plans and McCain’s plans and have written only a small fraction of what will happen under McCain. More will be written, this is just a start. I am not even going to bring up the “S” word, because it IS what will happen under Obama. He said it himself when asked a question from the now famous-“average-joe-the-plumber” – when he said, “i want to redistribute the wealth.”  Actually, I WILL bring it up. Here is the definition of SOCIALISM from merrium-webster:(click to go to link)

so·cial·ism , 1: any of various economic and political theories advocating collective or governmental ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods2 a: a system of society or group living in which there is no private property b: a system or condition of society in which the means of production are owned and controlled by the state3: a stage of society in Marxist theory transitional between capitalism and communism and distinguished by unequal distribution of goods and pay according to work done

 Anyone who reads the definition can see that a key word in the definition, the word distribution, is used to explain and define socialism.  Wait, let’s go back, what did Obama say?, “i want to REDISTRIBUTE the wealth.” Now i will mention, (for the liberals that insist that Obama does not want socialism), I am not saying that the minute or even in the first term, if Obama is elected president, our country will instantly become socialist country. I am saying, (and the definition of socialism says it too!) that Obama’s ideas and plans are “socialist”. If a person in control puts socialists plans, views, and ideas into play the result is….well…pretty close to that “S” word.

And just in case that definition is not enough here is the definition from Wikipedia:(click to see definition)

 

I have pulled information from the McCain site, other blogs, and many other internet resources that are referenced or linked to below.
 

 

 HERE IS WHAT McCAIN WILL DO AS PRESIDENT:

    1. CUT TAXES FOR MIDDLE CLASS FAMILIES

    2. PERMANENTLY REVOKE ALTERNATIVE MINIMUM TAXES(AMT)

AMT – THIS IS A TAX THAT 25 MILLION FAMILIES PAY – IT IS AN EXTRA TAX PAID ON TOP OF INCOME TAX. If the regular tax is higher, you don’t owe any AMT. But if the regular tax is lower, the difference between the two taxes is the amount of AMT you have to pay.

Example 1: Your regular income tax is $47,000. When you calculate your tax using the AMT rules, you come up with $39,000. That’s lower than the regular tax, so you don’t pay any AMT.

Example 2: Your regular income tax is $47,000. When you calculate your tax using the AMT rules, you come up with $58,000. You have to pay $11,000 of AMT on top of the $47,000 of regular income tax.

If you’re paying attention, you’ve probably noticed that the total amount of tax you pay in Example 2 is equal to the tax calculated under the AMT: $58,000. But it’s important to note that you actually pay $47,000 of regular tax plus $11,000 of AMT.

McCAIN’S PLAN WILL SAVE NEARLY $60 BILLION IN JUST 1 YEAR. IN SHORT, ON AN AVERAGE A MIDDLE CLASS FAMILY WILL SAVE $2700

     3. KEEP TAX RATES LOW

     4.  MAKE IT HARDER TO RAISE TAXES – Right now it takes a two-thirds majority vote in both chambers to raise taxes. McCain want to make the majority vote three-fifths.

     5.  CUT COPORATE TAX – Current rates for 2003-2008

Taxable income over Not over Tax rate $ 0 $ 50,000 15% 50,000 75,000 25% 75,000 100,000 34% 100,000 335,000 39% 335,000 10,000,000 34% 10,000,000 15,000,000 35% 15,000,000 18,333,333 38% 18,333,333 ………. 35%

The rate is right now the SECOND HIGHEST in the world.  There is a 35% federal rate, climbing to close to 40% on average counting state corporate income taxes.
UNDER OBAMA:How are American corporations going to compete successfully in the global marketplace with this crippling tax disadvantage? These are the same corporations we are looking to for new jobs and higher wages. That is not going to happen if these corporations can’t compete.

WHY McCAIN’S PLAN WORKS: Just look, it has already been done and in Ireland they make 50% MORE with a corporate tax rate of 12.5%
CAN IT BE ANY CLEARER!!!!
 
Even in Europe, the average corporate tax rate has been reduced from 38% in 1996 to 24% today. All of the 27 countries of the EU have lower corporate tax rates than the U.S. Corporate tax rates are lower in booming India and China as well. Ireland adopted a 12.5% corporate tax rate 20 years ago. Since then it has climbed from the second lowest per capita income in the EU to the second highest. A 2007 U.S. Treasury study found that on a comparative basis Ireland raises almost 50% more in revenue with its 12.5% rate than the U.S. government does with its 35% corporate rate.

6. REWARD SAVING, INVESTMENT, AND RISK TAKING

7. ALLOW FIRST-YEAR DEDUCTION, OR “EXPENSING” OF EQUIPMENT AND TECHNOLOGY INVESTMENTS. What this means corporations will be able to deduct the cost of equipment investment, providing a valuable pro-growth investment incentive. Expensing of equipment and technology will provide an immediate boost to capital expenditures and reward investments in cutting-edge technologies

Above are only 7 things that McCain will do to better OUR ECONOMY! But there are MORE!!!!

  • McCain will ban internet taxes !!!!!THIS MEANS PAYING TAXES ON YOUR BLOG, EMAIL, EVERY DOLLAR OF MONEY THAT COMES FROM ADS ON YOUR BLOG!!!!!!!

Ban on the Internet tax is one of the most compelling and important bills to cross legislator desks in years. A tax of the Internet would be an utter mistake that could cause even more ridiculous spending on the part of this government at the expense of hard working individuals that rely on the Internet for entertainment, well being, employment, or any combination of those attributes.(http://lorelle.wordpress.com/2007/12/22/are-you-willing-to-pay-taxes-for-your-blog/one)

  • McCain will ban new cell phone tax – he will prevent being charged tax on every text messages, even 911 calls. Yes you read that correctly, there would be a tax on 911 calls!!
  • McCain will establish a permanent tax cut equal to 10% of wages spent on research and development

And McCain will lower Medicare premiums

JUST ONE MORE HUUUUUGGGEEEEEE POINT BEFORE I GO.

OBAMA WILL HURT SMALL BUSINESSES!!

Most jobs in America are created by small businesses. Let’s look at the impact of Obama’s tax increases on a small business family. The husband has a steady job of his own, but the wife runs an unincorporated small business that stumbles for several years then starts doing quite well, employing five people. Together their family income reaches just over $250,000.

Under the Obama tax plan, their marginal income tax rate alone climbs to 39.5%. The payroll tax increase would add as much as 4 percentage points more, raising the total to 43.5%. State income taxes raise the total to close to 50%, over 50% in higher tax states like New York and California. If she sells the business, she must pay taxes on it again through the capital gains tax. If she saves the money from the sale, when the husband and wife die they may pay taxes on it again through the death (estate) tax. The total marginal tax rate they pay is higher than under Clinton, and much higher than under Reagan, who reduced the top federal tax rate down to 28%. Will the business continue to expand and hire more workers, or will the wife decide to slow down and spend more time with the kids?

So please, VOTE, VOTE, VOTE for McCain VOTE, VOTE, VOTE for McCain VOTE, VOTE, VOTE for McCain VOTE, VOTE, VOTE for McCain  VOTE, VOTE, VOTE for McCain  VOTE, VOTE, VOTE for McCain  VOTE, VOTE, VOTE for McCain!!!!!!!!!!!
